At Lickleyhead Castle there are numerous services we can help arrange to make your stay here even more special. Should the lady of the castle have to make her own bed or the laird cook his own meal? Of course not! Why not bring in a maid to do the housekeeping, a butler to pour your wine or a chef to prepare your food? Whatever your need, let us know and we will see if we can arrange something suitable.
Is it really a holiday if you have to make the beds yourself? Housekeeping can be arranged on a daily basis. The housekeeper will make beds, use a vacuum cleaner and generally tidy up but will not wash dishes. The housekeeper will work for approximately 4 hours.
£150-£175 per day
Catering can be arranged for a single evening or more than one and includes options such as a buffet or a 3 course meal. Please download the form below (docx file), complete it and send it back to us and we will try to find a suitable caterer.
Can you imagine Mr. Darcy carrying his own bags or pouring his own drinks? It's just not the done thing. A butler brings an extra sprinkle of class and sophistication to the affair. Please let us know how many days or nights you require this service.
Your host, James, will give you a tour of the castle upon your arrival, pointing out interesting features and regaling you with stories of the famous or villainous people and families that have graced these halls. Available between 4pm and 5:30pm on first day.
Complimentary for guests
If you need a pick up/drop off at Aberdeen Airport let us know and we may be able to help arrange this service for you. This is also a good idea if you want to do a whisky tour or if you have no other means of getting around. Public transport is possible but difficult here.
Lickleyhead Castle is pet friendly but you might not always have time to exercise your canine companions during your time here. Worry not, we can do that for you. We can exercise up to 3 dogs at a time for a 30 minute walk. Dogs will be kept on leads.
A private chef is a good choice if you don't want to do any cooking at all. Various cooking styles possible. Non-local chefs might need to stay in the castle with you and therefore require a bedroom in which to sleep, else they will have to be put up locally.
Don't forget to say cheese! If you are having a special occasion here and want beautiful photos to remind everyone of your time at Lickleyhead Castle, we can arrange for a professional photographer to take some snaps.
A fine selection of sandwiches, cakes and scones (plus jam, cream and butter), all washed down with your choice of tea or coffee. Available inside at the kitchen table or outside in the rose garden. It depends partly on the weather!
While there are facilities for washing and drying your clothes yourselves in the castle, we can do it for you if you prefer. There is no tumble dryer in the castle, so especially on cold or wet days this might be a good choice. Does not include ironing or dry cleaning.
£25 per load. Prices for ironing and dry cleaning available on request
On a sunny day, what could be more pleasant than strolling through the verdant Aberdeenshire countryside before taking your lunch atop Dunnideer Hill amid the ruined walls. Includes sandwiches, fruit, cheese etc.
If you are planning to do a group activity at the castle or just want mementos of your time here, matching t-shirts for everyone might be the solution. Currently the design above is our only option. Please let us know number of t-shirts and sizes. T-shirts can be ordered well in advance and held by us until your arrival.
